Equitably improving primary health care requires research and practice-based learning that are thoroughly grounded in the principles of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, Indigeneity, and Accessibility (EDIIA). POPLAR, Ontario’s provincial primary healthcare Practice-Based Learning and Research Network, is hosting four monthly webinars, beginning in July, for anyone who wants to learn more about building these principles into their work.
POPLAR’s vision is to advance equitable primary healthcare delivery and health outcomes for everyone in Ontario. We aim to embed EDIIA principles in all our activities. This ongoing learning journey requires self-awareness, reflection, and action. We are committed to developing approaches to leadership, research, data collection, knowledge mobilization, knowledge translation, and data management that are in keeping with EDIIA. Join us in our journey.
EDIIA and Data - Building Capacity
EDIIA concepts should inform the collection, governance and use of health data for research, Quality Improvement and system planning. However, all too often this occurs in a tokenistic or performative way, rather than being transformative. During this session, you’ll hear from Dr Andrew Pinto, founder of the Upstream Lab and co-lead of POPLAR’s Clinical Research Committee, as he takes us through key considerations relevant to building capacity in primary care for both applying EDIIA and the conduct of data science, outlining four key recommendations for research teams.
